Faucet

A number of different plumbing problems can cause a faucet to leak, from corroded pipes or defective gaskets to mineral deposits in the internal parts of the faucet. Leaky faucets can be irritating, but they can also be a serious problem.

If you ignore a leaking or dripping faucet in your home, the problem can quickly change from a simple repair to a complex plumbing issue, so it’s important that you have the problem taken care of as soon as possible. The professional Ohio plumbers at Wind Bender Mechanical Services, LLC can fix any plumbing problems that you encounter, and we’ll be able to diagnose and repair any leaking faucets quickly and accurately.

The Facts

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, leaks in plumbing fixtures can waste up to 10,000 gallons of water per household every year. The most common leak problems occur with:

  • Toilet flappers
  • Valves
  • Faucets

The EPA states that fixing these problems can save you up to 10% on your water bills every month.

Dripping faucets can waste a tremendous amount of water, so this problem has a serious impact on the environment. If you don’t have any leaks in your Ohio home repaired, you’ll be wasting both money and valuable resources.

Causes of Leaking Faucets

If your faucet is leaking, it’s most likely the result of one of these problems:

  1. Loose Parts

Because your faucet is most likely used very frequently, it’s very common for some of its inner-workings There are many moving parts in your Fairfax home’s faucets, and when they come loose, they can cause leakage at the handle of the faucet. You should either tighten or replace these parts of your faucet.

  1. Worn Out Seals

Disc faucets have inlet and outlet seals that are necessary to the way they function and which can become worn over time with constant use and sediment buildĀ­up. This often causes faucets to leak. Our Ohio plumbing repair specialists can clean the water sediment to restore your faucets proper functionality. You may also need to replace the seals of the faucet.

  1. Broken Plumbing

This is the least common cause of leaking faucets, but it is possible that your faucet is leaking because there is a broken pipe of broken fitting somewhere in your plumbing system. When pipes cracks or break, it can alter the water pressure of your Ohio home’s plumbing system, which can cause your faucet to leak. If you’ve tried other solutions, contact our plumbers to have your plumbing system inspected.
